Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need experience in hospitality?

We want our franchisees to treat Cowch like their home and welcoming guests to be like having friends over to their home.

You can’t teach dedication, passion and determination. And if you have these qualities, we can work with you to ensure you achieve the best results for your Cowch store.

Whilst previous food and retail industry experience is not seen as essential, it will be advantageous.

Aside from financial standing, other key factors we seek in new franchise partners is past business and career achievements, great communication skills, a commitment to superb customer service, a willingness to adhere to Cowch guidelines, principles and operating policies, and procedures, plus a willingness to have fun.    

What are the costs involved/investment needed?

The initial investment for a site depends on a range of factors, including the site location, size, and lease terms. The initial investment can range from $500,000 to $700,000 plus GST.


How long does the entire process take?

Usually, once approved, you could be in your very own store within 4-5 months assuming a suitable site has been identified. During that time your store will be built and you would have completed your 4 weeks of training.

Your cooperation with the franchising team will ensure your application progresses as quickly as possible.


How much can I expect to earn?

Earnings from store to store can vary widely and Cowch cannot estimate the results of any particular Franchisee. Success is based on a number of factors; the most important of which is the excellence in operational standards upheld by the Franchisee. There are business risks involved in starting any new business and earnings are not predictable.


Will I be able to sell my store in the future?

Yes, your store is yours to sell. Your franchise agreement outlines the requirements for a sale, and the prospective buyer will need to go through our standard recruitment and selection process.


Do I need citizenship or residency?

Yes. All Guarantors and Owners must be a citizen or permanent residents of the country in which the store is located.


Am I required to actively run the store?

Yes. For a store to be successful, it is essential that the franchisee is personally involved in all aspects of the business, as nothing can replace dedicated and passionate owners. You must be willing and able to perform all sales, food prep and management functions which will require a significant time investment. Running a store is a mandatory requirement for Cowch franchisees.


I’m interested. What’s next?

Please contact us with your expression of interest. On receipt, we will send you an information pack along with the Application Form and the Confidentiality Agreement for you to complete and submit to Cowch. All information will be treated in strict confidence. We will then arrange for an interview to discuss the next step in becoming a Cowch Franchisee.
